Arsenal fear nobody according to Mesut Özil
Mesut Özil has stated that Arsenal have no reason to fear any team due to the calibre of player they have within their own ranks.
The 26-year-old was asked about his thought processes leading up to the assist by Arsenal Player.
“I feel very confident, especially when you look at the matches we played against the big teams who we have also been successful against,” Özil told Arsenal Player.
“Last year we were maybe unlucky in those games. But we have learnt allot that and this year we have shown we can win these games.
“We don’t have to be afraid of any team because we have some very good players in our ranks and i think that shows this season.”
Özil was criticised for lacking the strength and fitness to play Premier League football when he arrived from Real Madrid on a record £42.5 million move.
The 26-year-old spent three months out injured after sustaining a blow to his knee in October.
The World Cup winner worked on his fitness and strength during his time out, returning with an extra kilogram of muscle mass.
Özil has been praised for his work rate since returning from injury and is currently one of the highest ranking players in terms of distance covered in the Arsenal team.
The attacking midfielder has also provided the highest number of assists on his team following his return from injury.
